People are different

Blog Posted:3/21/2012 7:16:00 PM
It seems like immaturity is rearing is ugly head. While it is not our job to police immaturity, we do feel it's important to comment on it. People are different. A wise person makes allowances for the fact that he does not act the same way or deal in the same manner with all persons.

People are different
; they have different personalities, different habits, different traits. What we might think is in good taste, another may consider objectionable. Often it is over very small matters that two persons do not get along. Therefore, to avoid a clash in personalities, be willing to make concessions. Be flexible.

Therefore it might be said that the ability to get along with others is a measure of one’s maturity. The mature person knows it takes two persons to make a quarrel; moreover, he does not expect too much from others and he is willing to overlook immature conduct in others.

If a poet wants 10 first places in their contest, that's their choice. If you don't like it just don't enter their contests. Simple. There's no needs to post blogs about it. If someone blocks you; so be it. We have over 16,000 members on the Soup. Now, if many people block you, look in the mirror.

Anyway, it is up to you Soupers to keep Soup a haven. Please try to do so.

    Maybe there can be a suspension of blog participation if a poet is continuously conducting themselves in a negative fashion. Yea I know I said I was taking some days off lol. Peace poets. And let's see some poetry, that is why we are here. And thank you Team Poetry Soup for one reading and commenting on my blog and two for giving me a place to write and polish a craft. Always playing fair. Michael

    Yes people are different ,and that's why we have to love those around us for who we are,be more understanding and compassionate/Being different is what makes the world go round and beautiful..and being like a family is what makes the soup a different site from others. I'm sure that sometimes people say words when they are angry or hurt which can later regret.. We should never bottle our emotions when we are angry,that i learned through experience..I do believe with a little bit of thought anything can be fixed in life,its about being able to say sorry ,forgive and forget-Hugs Charma

    Online attention-seeking... attempting to attract the attention of other people, typically by disruptive or excessively extrovert behaviour: The attention seeker will often type in bold to get themselves seen..every incident or opportunity, no matter how insignificant, is exploited, exaggerated and if necessary distorted to become an event of dramatic proportions. Everything is elevated to crisis proportions..Scheming, cunning, devious, deceptive and manipulative, they will often identify their "harasser" and produce circumstantial evidence in support of their claim..In many cases the attention-seeker is a serial bully. Thats all im saying....

    Soup, I like what you said AND how you said it. Clear, plain and direct. Thank you for your interjection and I agree. Flexibility is the key. Cyndi
